During the first half of 2019 the eight Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) within Sussex and East Surrey have been engaging with and listening to members of the public, patients and colleagues to gather views and feedback on the NHS Long Term Plan, and our local Population Health Check.
We have held a number of events across Sussex and East Surrey, and we are also going out to speak with groups and communities. Members of the public have also had the opportunity to voice their views via the Our Health and Care…Our FUTURE surveys.
We have been asking people we engage with to give us their views on priorities for health care, based on the key areas outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan:
- Supporting people with long term conditions
- Community and out of hospital care- integrated teams
- Mental health and wellbeing
- Maternity and children’s services
- GP (primary) care
- Improving emergency care
- Digital solutions
The outcomes of this exercise so far are outlined below; note that this is indicative only, and will not be used in isolation to prioritise NHS funding or service delivery.
